Not the hearing or Deaf world | Heather Artinian | TEDxGeorgetown


Heather Artinian is a student at Georgetown majoring in Government and minoring in Justice & Peace studies. Heather was the subject of an academy-award nominated documentary titled ‘Sound and Fury’. The documentary focuses on her family and their struggle to make a decision whether to give her, 5 years old at the time, a cochlear implant that would enable her to hear. Heather will share her journey through life; learning how to speak and hear, attending hearing schools, and being part of the deaf culture and the hearing world.

About: In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
